Coronavirus Nigeria update: 160 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in Nigeria

The National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has shared the latest update on the state of Coronavirus in Nigeria

These updates, which are shared on NCDC’s official Twitter account and which help Nigerians to monitor the state of the virus in the country, seem to have balanced out.

The numbers have constantly stayed above 100 new cases for the last few days and below 200 new cases. However, the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has said that this may be because of the low testing rates in the country.

According to the latest updates, FCT and Plateau State recorded the highest number of new cases with 39 new cases each. After, Lagos State follows with 30 new cases.

Kaduna State follows with 23 new cases of Coronavirus recorded in the state. The new numbers bring the total number of Coronavirus cases recorded in the country to 56,177.

44,088 people have been successfully treated and discharged from isolation centres. Unfortunately, 1,078 people have died from Coronavirus related illnesses.
